2.0 out of 5 stars Great Game w Major Flaws, March 5, 2012
By 
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Fortune Street (Video Game)
- General -
1. Game should not be compared to Mario Party as it is not action / mini-game focused.
2. Plays like an expanded rules Monopoly, or an Acquire / Monopoly mix.
3. Also plays more like an enhanced board game than a video game.
4. Average game takes approximately 2 hours.

- Pros -
1. Very fun game overall. (Rules, sounds, turns, visuals etc...)
2. Over 100 things to buy and customize your Wii-Mii with,
using "stamps" collected in Single Player mode.
(Outfits, character animations, mascots and personality labels.)
3. Items bought are also used in Multilayer Mode.
4. Fun to unlock some characters and a few new boards.

- Cons -
1. Can not save Multiplayer games rather local or WiFi.
This is an extreme design flaw considering the length of
the average game, and WiFi internet disconnects.
2. Can not rejoin WiFi game if dropped / disconnected.
3. Only one player per system for WiFi games.
5. The auction feature which is an important part to the game strategy is disabled for online games.
6. Very poor AI

- Bottom Line -
This game would be a fantastically fun game for anyone who really likes Monopoly styled games.

It is at its "5 star" best with 4 humans playing a local game, who wont need to save the game,
and are enjoying playing the game together.

It is at its "1 star" worst with 2 humans playing a WiFi game,
(with others unable to join the fun due to the one player per system restriction),
hoping it wont disconnect, aggravated they cant save the game and come back to it later,
and suffering absurd AI "luck" the entire game.

- Final Note -
Although there is an "easy" and "standard" game setting,
the strategy style of both requires a degree of long term and mathematical thinking.
Anything from age to personal preference could greatly affect how aptly someone would be
able to make use of game mechanics, and so affect its entertainment factor as well.

I've been playing Fortune Street since its release and I feel your review is very accurate, though I feel you underscored it. Though its online functions do suffer flaws, I find it is much more fun played locally and feel that this was its intended use, like Monopoly, which people willingly sit down to play for hours. Your fun score is accurate though.
